Hooray! Publication of my book for young readers is getting close. This week I returned the proof copy to the publisher with only minor adjustments. I hated to part with it. Working with the people of Tate Publishing is a very rewarding experience. The illustrator did a wonderful job of capturing the characters and weaving the pictures into the story. Working with the editor and book designer has been a joy and last week I was invited to select the narrator for the audio version from an array of five audio clips. If you noticed a bright glow in the sky coming from the Virginia area that was my smile when I realized that characters close to my heart for so long will soon make their debut.
